I have the most wonderful faux leather coffee table ottoman at home, I use it almost every Sunday with my youngest daughter, we just sit around and enjoy different things and play different games, and the wonderful thing is that I bought it from the flea market some three years ago! Yes, I did some restoring and some cleaning as well, but it looks as new.
And although I have a probably very old faux leather coffee table ottoman, it looks as new and whenever I have guests, the first thing they will compliment me on is how beautiful and “vintage/old times” it looks.
Here are the best techniques in order to take good care of your faux leather coffee table ottoman.
The first one is to always be reactive.
And here, I’m talking about spills, when you have them, the first thing you should do is run to the kitchen and get a dry cloth.
Try to wipe your table with and make it absorb as much liquid as possible, and if you are dealing with alcohol, be extremely quick because as you may probably know, alcohol is very damaging as a liquid, it contains very aggressive chemicals and these are going to deteriorate the faux leather fabric very quickly, be careful!
The second thing is to take some few drops of warm water and wipe gently the affected area.
When you are done, why not take some few drops of your favorite leather conditioner and apply it gently, they will get rid of the excess moisture and nourish the fabric tremendously.
The second thing to always have in mind when taking good care of your faux leather coffee table ottoman is to do some maintenance.
Every four months, in fact, it depends on how much you use it and whether it’s exposed to sunlight and heat excessively or not, apply a good amount of either baby oil or a good faux leather conditioner, these products are going to add many years to your ottoman coffee table and they will also make it look amazing over the time.
